Converse Jack Purcells
Whenever it was when Irene lived in apartment in San Pedro
These aren't all that comfortable nor do they keep my feet warm. I'm not really a sneaker person.
2nd day of waiting @ Harbor General
Clogs with metal cap toes
O' My Sole
Marina Del Rey
Love the metal caps on these. My wooden clogs tend to get all split at the toe + these are protected. Also good for kicking dolts that step on me in clubs.
It took me a while to find the right place to start:
I also took photos and sketched my shoe and read The Girl Who Played With Fire (Amazon aff) which sort of distracted me from the 5 hour ordeal. All I came away with was an appointment to see someone in Urgent Care tomorrow. To be continued... hopefully with less waiting.
Lord John's Bootery
Emergency purchase because all I took to NY was a pair of rubber boots that gave me horrible blisters. Store right around the corner from hotel.
additional field notes:
while I was sketching this, an older man (clearly under the influence of strong meds -- HE mentioned vicoden) started lurching around right in front of me, peeling off outergarments, saying "it's awful hot in here." I was seriously worried that it would get ugly fast, but thankfully his fit passed and he went elsewhere.
Converse Suede Sneaker
A friend, John Borack, is doing a charity for the Boys + Girls Club of Stanton. He calls it Bucks for Chucks. It was actually this charity that got me drawing my shoes.
first sneaker drawing + post
1979 (?) Roxy's (?), Thayer St, Providence, RI
I wore these shoes A LOT in the 80s
In one of my "pound the pavement" trips to NYC I lost one of the heel taps. I wore that heel down 1/2". A great shoe repair guy sawed off the other side to match. Now 1" wide base kitten heels.
They're really beat up, but oh so comfortable

theme for this one is "in these shoes" I'm going to sketch my shoes in pencil -- as I see them when I wear them. plus verbiage about when, where I bought the shoes and any other thoughts on them. that's the plan anyway...

Pros: Sturdy, Attractive Design
Primary use: Business
I put my small-scale artwork in these. Riveted hole at top makes them easy to hang. Only wish it came in a horizontal version.
